What’s this then? This, my friends, is the first mid-engined supercar designed, engineered and built in India, for Indians. It’s called the DC Avanti and the work of Dilip Chhabria – designer and founder of DC Design – a company better known for building concept cars and prototypes. One day, he decided to put his own supercar into production. The man has guts. The Avanti was actually launched in India back in 2015, but as we rarely find ourselves in Pune (three hours east of Mumbai, home of DC Design) with a day to spare, we’re yet to have a go. No time like the present… It looks… interesting. Do I sense cynicism? OK, so the rear looks like it’s been parked up against a radiator, and melted, the front end has a fish-like quality and the ride height is more SUV than supercar (all will be explained), but for sheer traffic stopping drama it does the job, and then some.
